How does a man start crossdressing?

There are many reasons why a man might choose to crossdress! Of course there's the standard DSM definition of a crossdresser as being someone with a 'mild' personality disorder...often prompted (so they say) by a slightly deprived sensual and tactile relationship with the mother especially. Though there is often a psychological reason why a man would want to dress in a woman's clothes (isn't there a psychological reason why someone might prefer red over green), there seem to be a very large number of crossdressers (often calling themselves 'CD' or TV -'transvestite'), who simply dress for the pure sensual pleasure of it. In the case of a bisexual male, crossdressing mjay be an aspect of the man wishing to literally adopt the feminine role in a bisexual relationship. Others crossdress as a form of play, and often do so with the encouragment and consent of their wives/partners. However, a great majority of crossdressers practice in what is called 'the closet' which is often a reflection of the refusal of a female partner to accept what she might perceive as non-masculine behaviour and is threatened by any hint of an activity of that kind in her male partner. There are many excellent organisations that offer advice and help to any crossdressers out there. Try www.tvchix.com for example, where you can chat with crossdressers (and sometimes their wives!), about the 'scene'. In an age of sexual and sensual 'liberty' and experimentation, I urge all crossdressers NOT to feel ashamed of their desires.
